Apple is launching new iPhone photography and iPad art workshops in 2016

In the new year, Apple plans to offer two new workshops in its retail stores designed to help iOS users unlock their creative sides.

One of the workshops Apple plans to launch focuses on creative iPhone photography techniques, while the other hones in on teaching people how to use the iPad for sketching, painting and other art-related purposes.

“We’ll help you try out various accessories and techniques — like long exposure for light trails, using Time-lapse to show progression, or getting up close with nature using a macro lens. Then, we’ll explore artistic ways to adjust and edit your photos, so you can create a work of art, find your style, or just improve your skills,” said Apple in a statement.

These new programs are part of Apple’s Start Something New Campaign which launched roughly a year ago. The new workshops aren’t listed yet on Apple’s website but CNET is reporting they’ll be added to the company’s pre-existing list of classes.

It’s unclear if these classes are coming to Canada, but given Apple says they will be launched on a worldwide basis, it’s likely they’ll be offered at Canadian Apple Stores as well.

    So, you guys gonna report on the news that just dropped about Apple paying 300 million euro for fraud or you’ll keep the fanboyism alive by pretending it never happened and Apple is led by saints?

      Big deal. You are talking about Italy which is a text book case of rampant corruption in business and politics. It’s hardly news that Apple would try to sidestep paying tax just like countless other companies out there. It’s surely a moral issue but not exclusive to Apple so get off your bashing horse.

    • DeadPool

      It’s a big deal because if it was any other company, this beautiful website would have reported it by now. They won’t because it’s Apple.

    • Wilhelm

      It’s not a Canadian company nor allegations against the Apple in regards taxing owing in Canada. Who cares about Italy and what goes on over there? It wasn’t even fraud. It was a simple tax case involving loopholes that countless other companies have used but just either haven’t been caught or been in the news.

      You are here to do nothing more than bash the company, along with that BB Rimtard Techguru who couldn’t see past his tactile keyboard with two hands and a flashlight if his life depended on it.

      Also, your mother.

    • Wilhelm

      What? lol. Are you okay?

    • It’s Me

      Must be tiring carrying such a large and bitter tasting chip on your shoulder.

    • DeadPool

      Nope. I’m full of energy. By the way, since you probably didn’t get it, I’m not bashing Apple, I’m bashing MS who would report the news if it was Google like they actually did when Europe started an anti trust investigation against Google. The same organisation now caught Apple with fraud to which apple plead guilty and paid but MS doesn’t report it.

    • It’s Me

      A) that’s in Italy, we are still in Canada the last time I checked.
      B) don’t resort to dishonesty, it’s pathetic. They didn’t admit to fraud and there were no charges of fraud. It was a tax case related to using similar tax loopholes that Google and Microsoft use.
      B) They also didn’t report that Apple’s environmental agenda means they are now one of if not the largest consumer of “green” energy in China and they are forcing many of their largest suppliers to follow.

      But keep on living with the bitterness.

      I love you.

    I’ve never fully understood the need for taking a class to learn how to use any Apple product. The simplicity speaks for itself and honestly unless you’re completely tech illiterate what’s the point? Still, these classes might actually be useful because few people seem to know anything about taking a picture than just pressing the snap button.

    • Tech Guru

      Apple customers can barely turn their devices on, they need this. Also, they love the sense of community and feel special going to the Apple store for gongshows like this.

    • Wilhelm

      LOL Another bashing post with very little substance and to be frank, very insulting. No doubt you’re another !diotic BB user or a Fandroid.

    • Tech Guru

      Ooooooof. You forgot to add “sent from my iPhone”

    • Wilhelm

      lol…Yeah I I guess I did. Just like you forgot to add ‘Sent from my BB 10 device’ A relic of the ancient past.

    • It’s Me

      …or they could end up really bitter trolls.

    • Wilhelm

      This Techguru is nothing more than your typical Rimtard who still thinks Blackberry is relevant in todays’ market and where the share price is up because they steal revenue from another company they bought and book it as their own, as if THAT is their success story and not someone else. (i.e.: Good Technology)
